Plant Lady Skills

Since I’m becoming more and more of a plant lady, I’ve been trying toΒ  improve my “keeping-my-plants-alive” skills. My two favorite places for plant tips are Mama Botanica and Planterina. I’ve learned a lot about plant care from watching their videos on YouTube. For example: I had no idea I had to clean my plants! I also loved the tip about turning your plants a little bit (if possible) when you water them, to keep them growing nice and full.⁠
I’m still not an expert by far, but I did put my basic plant care skills into this drawing. Other houseplant tips are welcome of course! ⁠

Warm Sweater Day

Today is Warm Sweater Day, a Dutch national initiative that draws attention to saving energy. If we all become more aware of the energy that we use, we can help protect the environment. So today (and why not every day?) turn down the heating a little, put on your favourite warm sweater and save energy. Extra points for wearing a vintage sweater! πŸ˜‰ #warmetruiendag

Low-waste swaps, part 2

Low waste swaps part2 Cindy Mangomini

As promised a while ago, here’s a small update on what I’m doing to live a more low-waste and minimal life. This past year I’ve slowly been using up all the products I already own and when I finish a product I first ask myself: do I really need it? If I feel I do, I try to look for a natural DIY recipe online. If that’s not available I try to buy a plastic free version of the product that I’m replacing. It’s not perfect and not always possible, but it feels good to try.Β I think if everyone tries a little, together we can achieve a lot. Hopefully another update soon!
